The 1930’s hero bursts onto the big screen in a brightly coloured spectacle, as hero cop Dick Tracy takes on gangster boss Big Boy Caprice. A commercial hit, Dick Tracy is a visionary, stylish film – its design and palette all intended to reflect its comic strip origins. With Danny Elfman, Stephen Sondheim and Madonna behind the music and songs, this is a very special film – one that is rarely seen on the big screen.
